My father his father Got caught red handed Playing the vengeful right hand of God They passed it down from the kingdom of sin I got to ride for the rest of my life On the heels of a man in mask in the night Oh now I see that I'm slipping down again Oh now I never sold my soul To anybody quite like you Now I know at night it’s true The nights are cold since God has gone away The nights behold your God has gone away And now your God has gone Oh ye of little faith And God has eroded inside He has abandoned you Oh my I think I might douse faith in gasoline I have never been one with God I made a deity inside of myself I have the keys to the land of the dead I put it down and I'm burning a line in the night Now I know the sacrifice Now I see it in your eyes Now I never sold my soul
Haunted 05:20
I hear these distant voices whispering at night I see these darkened shadows dancing on the walls I feel as cold as death there’s no where left to hide I start to turn around the moments feel like years I see the darkness shifting slowly coming near Its start to pass right through me God I want to die Now that you’re haunted wanted Feel darkened waves of depression, possession You’ll rue the day Awakened cold and damp my head is thick and dull Rooms slowly comes to view I cannot make things out And then I see this phantom hulking black as night I’ve seen your lust for knowledge grown throughout the years You’ve felt compelled to seek me now that time has come I shall devour all your body mind and soul You’ll rue the day that you found me, resound me Now that you offed and deployed it, enjoy it You’ll rue the Day that you met me you can’t turn away Now that you’ve gone and you’ve destroyed the day You’ll see Life is a compromise Now that you’ve gone and ripped out your eyes You’ll see And through the darkness I see the light Shrouded black as night For he has come to deliver what I have been searching for my entire life (Screams) He’s left me disembodied floating through the night I see myself I’m laughing as I walk away And now I’m left here timeless God what have I done
Life is a game, life is the same Life is a sound that you hear when no one seems to be around We cannot answer we cannot fall Oh Beast of Revelations roll us in your maw We vow to fascination of paradise Ten heads you son of Satan shine in the moonlight We cannot fathom our father’s eyes Oh Beast of Revelations cut us down to size This cannot be Well I feel the tribulation, I feel it now I hear the disembodied spirit tell me how He said my anger is but a ruse Oh Beast of Revelations I appeal to you This cannot be Like a beast on the edge of the night Let the blood flow down This is hell with no end in sight Place the body bag down I feel the weight has lifted, I feel ashamed I’ve peeled the cancer from me that has made me lame And when I throw it to the unknown Oh Beast of Revelations beckon to your home
The Disease 05:22
Call the doctor cause I know the disease is in my head Call the priest before you know that the beast is in your head Father tell me who am I Judging people by and by Father tell me where to go When all my thoughts are blurry and all I feel is fury Father tell me where to go Call the doctor cause I know that I’ve been touched By a hand that was mine, by a hand that old as time Call the priest before you know that I’ve been wronged By a man without a name, by a man whose hung in shame Why don’t you see Father tell us what to do, when our world has gone askew Father tell us where to go When our sky is falling down, raining fire onto the ground Can’t you hear us calling with our hands up to sky Up past space and satellite, up past faith and blinding light Can’t you hear us calling now Should we live our whole life Binded down and paralyzed Should we live our whole life Binded down and patronized Can’t you hear us calling now
A mother dies and a child remains A wicked smile and the man he make the grade It’s over fast and the deed is done The die is cast and it comes up losing warlike snake eyes Fire away Now I’m by myself And I won’t go away I think I’m someone else, but no one else would play My world is fire and the fire it burn Atrocities to the point of no return So hammer back and the barrel lifts The bullet flies and the matter shifts to wall side freeze frame Fire away Now I’m on my own I’m dreaming of the day The day I can go home, but homes so far Away from here Now I never knew that I would fade away, little darling Now I trade my kingdom for a gun
You build this sanctuary Behind these broken walls You build this sanctuary now Now where’s your sanctuary When all the castles fall Now where’s your sanctuary now Don’t want to talk about it Don’t want to fight Don’t want to hear from you Don’t want to riff about it Who’s wrong or right Just take these words I tell you and plunge them deep inside And when your blood goes crazy You can’t go back Its in your gene pool baby So swim on back You hide in walls of paper To protect from the claw Hiding you’ll never take control Now where’s your caged canary When all the gases fall Now where’s your caged canary now You take my heart for granted I’ll take your soul I’ll leave you where you ‘re stranded So take these words I tell you and plunge them deep inside I cannot see past all your insecurities I will not be ten feet from all this type of life I cannot even tell you How much I hate this place I cannot even tell you How much I hate your face Now it’s time Tear your castle down
Disdain 05:20
I bow for nothing otherwise I stand for nothing but an empty compromise I see no purpose to your strife It adds no meaning to your weakened type of life You fill me with disdain So I bring you fucking metal back You take my life in vain So I bring you fucking metal back To a time when we were young I told you things I would not tell anyone And now you’ve left me in this cage And now my anger it intensifies with age I have refined it to an edge Infused with apathy from all encompassed sledge And now I wield it with resolve I must erase you if I wish you to evolve Now I finally see behind the pain and sorrow Lies the fallen rain Now I finally know what waits for me tomorrow Intensifies the pain I finally found you let me keep you for the night in hell
Into this ocean you place your pride To see it drown with emotional tide And it sinks and you taste The bitter bile from emotional waste You’re a bastion of decay Now that you can no longer remain A beacon of the light Born to death sentenced to life You made a monster, I made it bleed, You filled its wounds with emotional need I make it suffer, You make it fall Now we collapse under weight of it all You’re a bastion of decay Now that you can no longer remain A bastard of the night Born to death sentenced to life And you can try to save me And you can try to take me home And you can try to change me And you can try to take my absence of faith in my life But now that you’re gone Now that you’re gone away You’re a bastion of decay Breeding life for time to take away A bastard of the night Born to death sentenced to life
Soft politician Rework diplomacy An inquisition Wait for the sign Whats your position On foreign policy An abomination Wait for the sign Moon is full Sea is red Drenched with blood Eye to the sky Reigning hell from above Your television Is your complacency An opposition Wait for the sign I cannot face you Your mangled majesty I must erase you Wait for the sign And when you have nothing But sorrow and pain I pick up your pieced and rise again Wait for the sign You left us with nothing But fire and steel And we took this rubble And built a God A God of destruction A God of despair And when I’m in heaven All your children will burn


With the 2012 self-titled release, Kung Foo Preacher attempts to mix various genres of music into a compelling collection of melodic metal. The album is dark and aggressive, intellectual and artistic, and powerfully modern. The album mixes traditional 6th note rock/metal with neoclassical touches and haunting lyrics. The band has been a mainstay in the Dallas music arena for the last several years, playing most every musical venue in the DFW and surrounding areas. Their live performances are fun, dramatic, and energetic. This year they will be performing to support their latest self-titled release with a revamped stageshow. Their album will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and every other place where music is sold.
